I had mixed feelings about this place. I liked the very friendly owner and staff and was impressed with the knowledge of Belfast. However, I feel that in these smaller hostels, it can feel like you are intruding into someones home. The atmosphere was okay, but thats not something that i really value in a hostel, after all, its only a bed for the night, its not like you are staying long term. Rooms were comfortable (ask for a 4 bed dorm, the others looked to crowded and cramped). Overall an ok place to stay.
